I have 2.5 acres of land and I want to use some of it for a barn with an apartment loft. I do pl;an on keeping my horses in the bar at night and let them out all day in the pasture. Has anyone lived in an apartment loft, where the stalls are on the first floor and the apartment is on the second floor? Is it alright to live in permanently? The barn with the apartment loft is 1296 sq. Ft and it has four stalls, but there is another barn with an apartment loft that is 1728 sq. Ft and it has six stalls. I like the one with 1728 sq. Ft because it has more bedrooms and bathrooms. But I won't need six stalls, because I plan on buying two horses. So what should I do with the extra stalls?
Here is the website where I saw the apartment lofts.
